Tommy in Memphis

Tommy's site said he was going to play San Jose, but I guess he pulled out as he is not in the draw for San Jose. So the next Tournament shown was Memphis at Tommy's site so I thought I would go ahead and start the thread.

Re: Tommy in Memphis

Well Pavel beat Andy in Davis Cup, but Andy got sick during the Match. And even after getting sick he still almost beat Pavel. And poor Robby hasn't been doing anything at all this year. I think he has won a Match and that is all! It would be interesting to see a Tommy - Andy Match- up. But of course I won't be seeing it because to my knowledge it is not going to be carried on any channel I can get

with livestreaming they mean moving pictures broadcast from the tournament

when you have trouble with live scores then your computer must install Macromedia Flash or Sun Javascript because most live score windows work with that

Re: Tommy in Memphis

I don't think I can get livestream at all, but I can get the scores if the Tournament has live scoring at their site. That is if the live scoring is working So many times sites have the live scoring, but they stop working

Re: Tommy in Memphis

Mae, Tommy was never in the San Jose tournament, his website was wrong.

Here's an article about Tommy...

Posted on Tue, Feb. 21, 2006
Haas looks for best year ever
MIKE HENRY
Herald Staff Writer
BRADENTON - In his quest to rejoin the top ranks of men's tennis, Bradenton resident Tommy Haas spent the last six weeks of 2005 training with other ATP Tour professionals at the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy.

Judging from early returns, the 27-year-old German didn't let the holidays get in the way of his preparation.

Less than two weeks after extending world No. 1 Roger Federer to five sets in the Australian Open's round of 16, Haas won the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships on Super Bowl Sunday with a pulsating 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5) victory against Xavier Malisse of Sarasota, the defending Delray Beach champion.
Haas, who begins play in the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships today at the Racquet Club of Memphis, Tenn. (where he won his first ATP tournament in 1999) as the No. 6 seed against Justin Gimelstob, credits his fast start to offseason practice with Malisse and other players who call the NBTA at IMG Academies home.
Haas also worked at the International Performance Institute on the campus of IMG Academies with physical therapist Dave Hogarth.

"I got to work hard with guys like Xavier, Max Mirnyi, Taylor Dent, Glenn Weiner, Hugo Armando and Rik De Voest," said Haas, No. 30 in the ATP rankings. "We worked out together, competed every day and played basketball and soccer, so it was a lot of fun.
"That's really the only time of year you can work on fitness without the pressure of leaving in two days for a tournament. I committed myself to getting in great shape, and I think having that foundation is going to help me down the road."

The Delray Beach title was No. 8 on the ATP Tour for Haas, but his first since 2004, when he won the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston and the Mercedes-Benz Cup in Los Angeles.

Haas, who rose to a No. 2 world ranking in 2002 after winning four tournaments the previous year, missed the entire 2003 season following two surgeries on his right shoulder in a seven-month span.

After his 2004 comeback, he saw the second half of 2005 derailed by a freak ankle injury incurred warming up for his first-round match at Wimbledon against Janko Tipsarevic.

As he practiced his serves for the match, Haas stepped on a loose ball that had rolled back from the wall bordering the court. He landed awkwardly, tearing two ligaments in his ankle.

"That doesn't happen once in 500 years, maybe," Haas said, "especially at a Grand Slam.

"It affected me a lot the rest of the year and took me down quite a bit mentally. I tried to come back too early and never seemed to regain my energy. Plus, I never had the same confidence in my physical strength. When you lose some tight matches, you lose a little bit of confidence."

Haas also was in the process of a coaching change. After working and traveling with NBTA coach Red Ayme for more than eight years, he made an offseason switch to Thomas Hogstedt, a former ATP Tour player from Sweden.

"Red and I are like brothers, but I just felt it was time for a change," Haas said. "Thomas was ranked 35th in the world, and he traveled with guys like Bjorn Borg and Mats Wilander. He is also someone I can practice with on the court. He had all those components, so I'm going to give it a try and go from there."

Ayme oversaw a practice session between Haas and Malisse last week on the indoor tennis facility at the NBTA and was impressed by both players.

"Those guys have renewed energy and have made a firm commitment to physical training," Ayme said. "Tommy was really fit going into Wimbledon, and when he got hurt, he struggled for motivation the rest of the year. His work in the offseason has already paid off."

Although Haas and Germany were defeated 3-2 by France earlier this month in Davis Cup competition in Halle, Germany, this could be a banner year for Haas, who realizes he is at the peak of his physical and mental prowess.

He is eager to take on all comers - even the magnificent Federer.

"Taking him to the fifth set in a Grand Slam definitely gave me some encouragement," Haas said. "Beating him is a tough task, but it is one of the goals I'm setting for myself.
"But as long as I go out and compete every match and give it my best, I'm a quite happy person."

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Tommy in Memphis

thanks Fee, that is a great article. I hope he didn't let the DC loss demotivate him.
